Re: “North Carolina's ridiculous liquor laws

Intersting use of data to justify your point! The only problem is your facts are not exactly accurate. First of all the "state" is not in the liquor business. Each local ABC Board is regulated by the state but is operated independently. The state provides a listing of what can be carried in each system but it is the decision of the local Board as to what is carried in the store. Our local ABC Board has grappa available in all of their stores. The ABC system as a whole returned over $171M to the state, county and local government last year without expending any tax monies at all. Local taxes would increase without the contribution of the local ABC system from its profits. Private stores would not come close to replacing this revenue to our local economy. Perhaps a little more research is needed before making a recommendation based on a limited comparison of prices alone.
